The subject of dreams and auguries received a vast deal of attention in the Roman 
Empire at the beginning of the Christian Era. In the reign of the Emperor Augustus a 
law was passed obliging all who had dreamt of anything respecting the State to make it 
public at once, either by means of a placard ior by the mouth of the public crier. 

Thus great was the importance attache^ to dreams by the heathen philosophers of old. 
How firmly the Prophets of the Jews and the Apostles of Christianity believed in them is 
known to every Christian who reads his Bible. 

It must be remarked with regard to dreams of every description, that those not 
thoroughly complete are regarded as of no account. As it must, moreover, be borne in 
mind that, in order that those retained in memory shall be good and reliable, they should 
occur toward daybreak, and certainly after midnight, for up to that point of time, the 
animal functions of the body are occupied by digestion, and the brain troubled by the 
vapors of food, is incapable of rational impressions. However, Artemidorus, in his learned 
treatise, affirms that a man of sober and tranquil habits can be visited by dreams at any 
hour of the night, and occasionally during the day, prognosticating coming, events with 

Many authors have sub-divided dreams into three classes: relative to natural objects, 
to animals, and to celestial things. Those relating to natutal objects are such as by means 
of which physicians can judge of a person's physical disposition ; those, wherein animals 
are portrayed, originate from the passions, or the troubles to which the mind has been 
subjected during the day, while dreams wherein celestial objects are discerned, are warn- 
ings as to divine matters, as, for instance, the Great Image appearing to the King of Baby- 
lon in a dream, whose import was so ably interpreted by the Prophet Daniel. 

There are two principal kinds of dreams, the one species designated as speculative or 
contemplative, to which particular attention should be paid, as they eventuate almost 
exactly in the manner of their occurrence during dreaming. 

The second principal kind of dreams can be regarded as allegorical or significant, as 
they do not eventuate in the manner of their occurrence, but with an enigmatical solution. 
Thus, when one dreams of an angel, it signifies revelation, or good news; but to see a ser- 
pent threatening to harm you, designates vexations, annoyance and trouble from those 
envious of you. 

Speculative dreams have speedy solution, but allegorical ones do not eventuate 
as promptly. Generally a day or two intervenes between a dream and its coming to pass. 
Hence, persons are liable to deceive themselves, particularly when unlearned in the science 
of divination, through not preserving the distinction between the nature of dreams or 
through expecting one thing to occur, while another actually transpires. 



To dream of fire or of seeing fire, signifies the effects of anger, and almost all of those" 
thus dreaming habitually, are by nature hasty, wrathful and violent in disposition. 

To dream of burning one's self is a warning of the approach of a fever of greater or 
less violence. 

To dream of seeing a moderate fire, without smoke or sparks, is an augury of perfect 
health, or of a restoration to reason, should the dreamer be in a fever. Sometimes it 
foretells an abundance of means ; according to some, it denotes a festival or gathering of 
friends and relatives. 

But,, when one dreams of seeing a great fire, accompanied by much smoke and blaze, 
it signifies the happening of quarrels, in which the dreamer will participate, or of receipt 
of disagreeable intelligence. 

Seeing a fire extinct or burn out, signifies indigence, want and bad fortune ; oftentimes 
want of money. Still, if this dream occurs to an invalid it foretells him of a speedy 

To dream of seeing a lighted candle, burning clearly and brightly, is an excellent 
omen, as it announces to the sick, certain and speedy cure. Should the dreamer be un- 
married, it is a sign not only of his nuptials, but of success in business, or of receipt of 
public honors. A lantern, torch, lamp or burning fagot has the like significance, provided 
the flame be clear and brilliant. 

He who sees in a dream a candle, torch or lamp burning obscurely and with a flicker, 
can anticipate affliction, sadness or sickness, but of short duration. 

He who dreams of being on shipboard and seeing in the distance a clear, bright light, 
need have no fear of a disastrous voyoge. neithe^ of shipwreck nor storms. 

To dream of holding a burning torch or lightl is a good sign. Young people so doing 
will be successful in love, prosperous in business,! victorious over enemies and honored and 
respected by friends and kinsfolk. j 

To dream of seeing a lighted torch in the haiids of another signifies that the author of 
injury done you will be discovered and brought^ to punishment. An extinguished torch 
signifies the contrary. 

To see in a dream one or more houses ablaze with a fire, pure, clear and without 
sparks, and that the houses are neither consumed nor destroyed, prognosticates to the poor 
accession in goods, riches, legacies and gifts, and to the rich that they will be the recipi- 
ents of honors, or overwhelmed with dignities. But, if, on the other hand, the conflagra- 
tion be violent and scintillating, and the houses appear to fall down or be consumed, the 
signification of the dream is directly the reverse. 

When a married man dreams that his bed is on fire and he is likely to be consumed, 
this signifies damage, illness, or a disagreement for his wife ; if the wife dreams the same, 
the same accident will happen to the husband. 

When one dreams that he sees the upholstery or other furniture of a house on fire, and 
that it is consumed, this prognosticates some injury or annoyance to the master of the 

When you imagine seeing, in a dream, the wardrobe or the larder of the lady of the 
house on fire, it betokens either illness or disastrous news for that lady. 

Should you dream that the kitchen is burning, it denotes the loss of the cook, or of the 
servants, or of someone among those therein employed. 

If you imagine the shop to burn and be entirely consumed, it signifies loss in goods or 

Should you dream seeing the front windows to be on fire, and be consumed, it denotes 
the loss of a male relative; should the window be at the rear, you will lose someone among 
your female relatives. 

When you imagine seeing doors burn, it signifies some great misfortune for someone 
in the family, and sometimes for the dreamer in person. 

To imagine the upper part of a house consumed by fire denotes loss of goods, of a law- 
suit, or of friends. 

If you dream that you light a fire, and it burns up without difficulty, and simultane- 
ously, it signifies a generation of children who will be happy, and prove an honor to their 
mother. The same is true with respect to a candle, torch or lamp. 

When you dream that you light a fire with difficulty and it goes out, it forewarns hurt, 
injury and sorrow to some woman and to the dreamer.

scandal and loss of a lawsuit or of friends,

To dream of burning yourself and suffering pain, signifies envy, displeasure, anger or 
a quarrel. To dream of holding a lighted torch and carrying it into a public place signifies 
honor and success in your undertaking. 

To dream of burning one's finger signifies envy and sinfulness. 


Those who, in their dreams, witness a clear and serene sky, will be beloved and 
esteemed by everyone, while their enemies and others jealous of them, will seek reconcili- 
ation at their hands. 

An overcast sky in dreams denotes sadness, sickness, impediments in business. 

When one dreams of breathing balmy air, it designates that the life and manner of the 
dreamer are pure, peaceable and agreeable to society ; that the enterprises and journeys, 
by him undertaken, will eventuate according to his wish and desire. 

To dream of seeing a gentle fall of rain, with neither storm, tempest nor high wind 
signifies for a farmer gain and profit ; but, on the contrary, for merchants it denotes loss 
or spoliation of their merchandise. 

To dream of long and heavy rains, of fyail and storms, of hurricanes and tempests, is a 
sign of afflictions, disasters, vexations, dangers, losses and perils. 

To dream of hail is a sign of trouble and sadness ; it, moreover, signifies that affairs of 
the most secret nature and the best concealed will be brought to light. 

To dream of a thunderbolt falling near you, forewarns the dreamer that he will be 
obliged to flee the country, particularly should he be a prominent person ; but to dream of 
a house or yourself being struck by lightning is a sure sign of coming danger. 


To dream of seeing a moderate light in the sky, burning clearly and brightly, signifies 
a menace from some person in authority or of influence. 

To dream of a large fire in the heavens signifies aggression of enemies, poverty, deso- 
lation and famine, and the side upon which this fire falls designates the quarter whence 
your enemies will come, but should the fire fly through the air, or burst asunder so as to 
fall in different quarters, it will prove the more unfavorable. 


To dream of seeing the waters of a stream very clear and tranquil, is an excellent 
augury, above all for travelers, lawyers and judges. 

When the waters appear troubled, it forewarns a menace from some influential per- 
sonage, or a disgrace at the hands of your employer ; when thus dreaming, advocates will 
find themselves in trouble and cases will be badly adjudicated. 

To be in an impetuous current of water, seemingly without power to extricate your- 
self, is a sign of danger to the dreamer, or sickness, or of a long lawsuit. 

To dream of swimming in deep water signifies impending peril, only to be avoided by 

To see a well overflow, denotes loss of property or some great misfortune for one of 
your kindred ; should a woman have this dream, she is menaced by the loss of part of her 
property, and, perchance, of her lover. 

To dream that a clear stream of water flows around your chamber prognosticates the 
arrival of some rich and liberal person, who will bring profit to the dreamer ; but if the 
water be dirty and threatens to soil the furniture, it signifies a quarrel and disorders, 
caused by enemies to persons in the house, or nearly related to you. 

To dream of seeing a brook of troubled water denotes loss and injury through fire, 
lawsuits or enemies. 

To dream of seeing a small pond indicates that you are beloved by a beautiful woman; 
if a woman has this dream, it is a sign that she will receive that which she longs for. 

To dream of being on a boat upon a river, lake or pond, should the water be clear, is a 
sign of joy, prosperity and success in business. 

Should an invalid dream of a flowing stream or fountain of clear water, it predicts to 
him cure of his complaint ; but should the water be turbid or filthy, his recovery will be a 
matter of long time. 

To dream of drinking hot water announces a misfortune brought about through malice, 
by which you will be afflicted proportionately to the heat of the water ; for, inasmuch as 
cold water signifies good, its virtue is lost as it approaches the boiling point, by which is 
expressed intensity in evil— opposite to good. 

To dream of a bath is a sign of affliction and grief. 

If anyone dreams of entering a bath and of finding the water too warm, he will exper- 
ience annoyance or displeasure from his relatives, in proportion to the warmth of the water 
in the bath. 

Should you dream of entering a bath, of which the water is very cold, you will receive 
benefits corresponding to the temperature of the water ; but if it should be merely of tem- 
perate degree, it is still a good sign. 

If a man dreams of concealing in the earth a vase of water he is in danger of sustain- 
ing a sensible loss.

marriage. If he dreams the glass to be broken, it predicts the loss of many friends ; if

To dream of the sea, blue and slightly ruffled on its surface, signifies joy, and the 
means for business and success ; if the sea be of a perfect calm, it is a sign of procrasti- 
nation and delay, but when it is agitated by a storm, it denotes affliction, loss or adversity. 

He who dreams that he has fallen into the waters of the ocean, and awakens precipi- 
tately in the midst of his dream, will find great difficulty and trouble in emancipating him- 
self from detractors and enemies. 


Should anyone dream that he has been presented with a rural property, surrounued by 
a beautiful landscape view, it betokens that he will marry a lady, whose beauty will be 
proportionate to that of the landscape. 

Should the property appear to him spacious and without limit, it denotes pleasure, 
contentment and wealth, proportionate to the extent of the estate.

indicates that the dreamer's wife will be an accomplished, prudent, handsome and chaste 
lady, by whom he will have beautiful children.

acquired through care and toil, but according to the extent covered.

To dream that a mountain has fallen upon a plain, signifies the overthrow of some 
powerful personage. 

Should a person dream of seeing a city, known to him, overwhelmed by an earthquake 
or eruption, it is a sign of famine and war; but should he be unacquainted with the locality, 
it denotes that some foreign people will suffer from the same causes, with whom, however, 
he has relations.

dreamer that he will suffer injuries, that his life will be in peril, and his property threat- 
ened by destruction at the hands of incendiaries. 

To dream of falling to the ground, is a sign of sadness and humiliation, from which 
recovery will be difficult.

herds, but to all other people it is a sign of impediment in business matters.

prosperity and great success ; but a crooked, narrow road, disagreeable to be traveled 
upon, signifies the contrary. 


We reckon three species of dreams in relation to the productions of Nature : vegeta- 
tive, sensitive and rational.

fruits which receive from the earth and the sun their nourishment, vigor, growth and 
maturity, as the source of vegetable life. 

To dream of seeing, holding or smelling flowers, when in their season, signifies joy, 
pleasure and consolation. 

To dream of seeing or smelling flowers, when out of their season, if they be white, 
signifies obstacles to your designs, or bad success in your enterprises ; if they be yellow, 
the obstacles will not be so great ; and if they be red, the difficulties will be very slight : 
in fa*\t, for the most part, they may be taken as a sign of success. 

To dream of seeing and smelling roses in their season is a good sign for everybody 
except invalids and those forced to conceal themselves through fear, for to them it is a 
sign of a delay in recovery, or of danger of capture or arrest ; but if the dream occurs 
when roses are not in season, its signification is absolutely reversed. 

To dream of smelling marjoram, hyssop, rosemary, sage and other plants of that 
nature, signifies toil, sadness and depression, excepting- to doctors, to whom this is a 
favorable omen. 

To dream of holding, seeing or smelling a lily, when out of season, is a sign that your 
expectations will be realized. 

Whoever dreams of seeing or smelling olive, laurel or palm, if it be a woman, she will

many friends, be joyous, prosperous and blessed with abundance of worldly goods, and 
immense success in all the enterprises he may undertake.

purslane and others which we eat raw, signifies misfortune and business difficulties.

Turnips and cucumbers denote vain hopes. Some, however, contend that, when

quadrupeds and animals generally. 

To dream of seeing an eagle in an elevated locality is a good sign for those contem- 
plating some great work, and, above all, for persons engaged in martial occupations. 
Should one dream of seeing an eagle fall upon its head, it is a sign of illness for the 
dreamer, and it will be the same should he dream of being carried through the air by this 
royal bird. Should a woman dream of giving birth to an eagle, it predicts that the child 
she will bear will become a personage of consequence and a ruler of the people. This was

circle and success in business.

To dream of seeing two storks together indicates marriage, and a generation of chil- 
dren good and useful to their parents. 

To dream of honey bees is a prediction of prosperity and gain to dwellers in the 

country, but of disaster to the rich ; however, should they deposit honey in any part of the

after seeing or hearing them.

according to the opinion of the ancients, be delivered of a beautiful child, who will live to 
an old age, and be a comfort to the mother. 

If you dream of catching large fish, it predicts gain and profit, in accordance with the 
quantity taken ; if the fish be small, it denotes sadness. To dream of seeing fish of many 
colors, is to an invalid the sign of restoration to health, but to those who are not, it indi- 
cates injuries, quarrels or sorrow. 

To dream of eating large fish prognosticates fluxions, catarrh and melancholy. 


He who dreams of seeing a lion will converse with the chief magistrate of his country, 
or some renowned warrior or other man of national importance. He, who in his dream 
fights with a lion, will be engaged in some quarrel or combat with a valiant antagonist, 
and, if, in his dreams he comes forth victorious, such will he prove in actual reality. 

He who dreams of being carried on the back of a lion, is a sign of protection from 
some powerful personage. 

To dream of having been terrified by a lion, signifies having incurred the anger of some 
one in authority, and, unless the dreamer be a person of influence, it will cause him uneas- 
iness in mind and vexation of spirit. 

To dream of eating the flesh of a lion is a sign that a person will attain honors and an 
official position of dignity. 

To dream of having found the skin or the intestines of a lion, signifies to a person of

denotes that he will grow rich in a brief space of time. If a soldier dreams that there is 
brought to him a lion, chained and bound, it predicts that he will make a prisoner of some 
enemy of high rank. According to the ancients, when a king dreamed that there was in 
his palace a lioness and her cubs, it prophesied that the queen and his children would 
prove a source of immense contentment and succeed to his throne. The Queen Olympia, 
being pregnant with Alexander the Great, dreamed that Philip, her husband, had placed 
on her a seal, on which was graven the effigy of a lion, and this dream prognosticated the 
worth, magnanimity and subsequent conquests of her illustrious son.

that the former animals are more wily and malicious than lions, who always exhibit gener- 
osity and forbearance. 

To dream of an elephant, signifies, according to Artemidoros, fear and peril, but 
according to Apomazor, the Arabian seer, it denotes a rich man, for, he says, if anyone

some great potentate. On the other hand, Artemidorus narrates that, having known a 
tich and powerful lady in Italy dream of having ridden upon an elephant, she fell sick. To 
4ream of giving an elephant to eat or drink, is a sign that yoji will connect your destinies 
with some influential personage, and be advanced thereby. 

To dream of having seen a bear signifies a rich and powerful enemy, unskilled, ridicu- 
lous, but audacious.

Dogs denote courage, fidelity and affection, when we dream of those belonging to us ;

erty through the arrest or death of a thief, who has previously robbed you, and, it will be 
the same if you dream of possessing the skin only.

If one dreams of seeing the head of an acquaintance cut off, it signifies participation 
in the pleasures, prosperity and honors of the individual indicated.

the dreamer may anticipate sickness ; but should a pregnant woman have this dream, it 
announces the birth of a male infant, but, at the same time makes known that her hus-

with a beard, it indicates an approaching marriage in accordance with her desires. To a 
married woman, however, such a dream foretells that she will assume sole control over the 
household, and act, as it were, the part of a man. To a pregnant female, a like dream 
announces that she will give birth to a male child. 

To dream of losing the beard, of being shaved, or of having it plucked off, denotes the 
loss of relatives, whose method of death will be sudden and violent proportionately to the

approach of wealth, a change in social position and future rejoicing. But to dream of the 
neck being withered or contracted, denotes precisely the reverse of all these significations.

another, it is a sign of very bad omen, and announces that the dreamer will fall into the

person* dream that he is strangled or decapitated by a judgment of a court or other decree 
of law, it is a sign that he will be delivered from sorrow, sadness or misery, or, otherwise

announces success in business. 


To dream of having horns upon the head, prognosticates possession of influence, eleva- 
tion to power, and possibly a position of dignity in the government. However, according

ing illness.

she be childless, that she herself will become poor, and in her hours of poverty will shed 
many tears of bitter affliction. 

When a person dreams of having the chest fuller -and more distended than is natural, 
it is a sign of long life and of richness proportionate to the extent of the fancied 

If a woman dreams of being gifted with a number of breasts it shows a proneness for 
conjugal infidelity.

by blood stains, is a forewarning of sterility.

to the mother, daughter, sister, or female friend of the one dreaming.

-or severely injured prognosticates the occurrence of most grievous sickness away from 
home, among strangers and beyond the reach of the attentive care of friendly relatives.

Dreams which come through a quiet and purified mind, yield abundant prophecies to 
us, as we can both see and ask questions. They, therefore, whose intellect, being over- 
whelmed by too much commerce of the flesh, is in a dead sleep, or fantastic power, or 
spirit, is too dull and unpolished, so that it cannot receive the species and representation 
which flow from the superior intellect; this man, I say, is altogether unfit for the receiving 
of dreams and prophesying by them. Therefore, it is necessary that he who would receive 
true dreams should keep a pure, undisturbed and imaginative spirit, and so compose it, 
that it may be made worthy of the knowledge and government by the mind and under- 
standing ; for such a spirit is most fit for prophesying, and is a most clear glass of all the 
images which flow (everywhere) from all things. Therefore, all those who would receive 
oracles by dreams, and those said oracles true and certain, I would have them to abstain 
one whole day from meat, and three days from wine or any other strong liquors, and drink 
nothing but pure water ; for to sober and religious minds the pure spirits are adherent, but 
fly from 'all those who are drowned in drunkenness and surfeiting. Although impure spirits 
do very often administer notable secrets to those who are apparently besotted with strong 
liquors, yet all such communications are to be condemned and avoided. 

This is the way whereby we may obtain all sciences and arts whatsoever, whether 
astrology, occult philosophy, physic, etc., or else suddenly and perfectly with a true illum- 
ination of our intellect, although all inferior familiar spirits whatsoever, conduce to this 
effect, and sometimes also evil spirits sensibly inform us, intrinsically.

Any plant bearing a resemblance to a portion of the human body is specific for the 
diseases which it is assimilated to, as follows : 

Maiden Hair and the Moss of Quinces resemble the fibres of the head. Hence a decoc- 
tion thereof is good for baldness. Plants resembling the figure of the heart are comforting 
thereto. Therefore the Citron-apple, Fuller's Thistle, Spikenard, Balm, Mint, White-beet, 
Parsley, and Motherwort, which bear in leaves and roots a heart-like form, are congenial to 
that organ. Herbs that similate the shape of the lungs, as Sage, Lungwort, Hounds- 
tongue, and Camphrey, are good for pulmonary complaints. Vegetable productions like in 
figure to the ears, as the leaves of Folefoot or wild Spikenard rightly prepared as a con- 
serve and eaten, improve the hearing and memory. Oil extracted from the shells of sea- 
snails, which have the turnings and curvature of the ears, also tends wonderfully to the 
cure of deafness. . 

When plants resemble the nose in their configuration, as the leaves of the Wild Water 
Mint, they are benificial in restoring the sense of smell. Certain plants having a semblance 
of the womb, as Birthwort or Heartwort, Ladies' Seal or Briony, etc., conduce much as a 
safe accouchement. Shrubs and Herbs like unto the bladder and gall are excellent for 
those parts, as Night-shade, Alkakenge and Nux Visicaria. These relieve the gravel and 
stone. Herbs formed like the milt, as Miltwort, Spleenwort, and Lupins, are recommended 
for the strengthening of that part of the human viscera. Plants that are liver-shaped, as 
the herb Trinity, Liverwort, Agarick, Fermitory and Figs, are efficacious in bilious diseases. 
Walnuts, Indian Nuts, Leeks and the root of Ragwort, because of their form, are said 
when duly prepared to further generation and prevent sterility. Herbs and seeds in shape 
like the teeth, as Tooth wort, Pine Kernal, etc., perserve the dental organization. Plants 
of knobbed form, like the knuckles or joints, as Galingale and the Knotty Odoriferous rush 
(Calamus,) are good for spinal complaints, renal diseases, foot gout, knee swellings, and 
all joint pains whatsoever. 

Oily vegetable products, as the Filbert, walnut, almond, etc. , tend to fatness of body. 
Plants naturally lean emaciate those who take them ; as Sarsaparilla or long-leaved Rosa 
Solie. Fleshy plants make flesh for the eaters ; for instance the Onion, Leek and Colewort. 
Certain plants fortify and brace the nerves ; for example the Sensitive plant, Nettles, the 
roots of Mallorus, the herb Neuras, etc. The same are to be used as outward applications. 
Herbs mildy in their substance propagate milk ; as Lettuce and the fruit of the Almond and 
Fig trees. Plants of a serious nature purge the noxious humors between the flesh and the 
skin, as Spurge and Scamony. Herbs whose acidity turns milk to curd, are said to lead to 
procreation. Such are Gallium, and the seeds of Spurge. Those semples that obstruct the 
coagulation of milk, as Rue mixed with Cummin, will relieve a sore breast when the milk 
is knotted in it, if applied thereto. Plants that are hallow, as the stalks of Grain, Reeds, 
Leeks, Garlick, etc., are good to purge, open and soothe the body. 


Years ago the herb market figured more conspicuously than it does at the present 
time. The important pot herbs are still grown to some extent, but medicinal herbs have 
largely gone or are represented by an odd plant or so, which is left to go very much in 
its own way. 

As a rule the maximum of virtue in herbs is when the flowering commences. After 
the seed ripens the plant begins to settle down as it were, and its quality is then past 
the maximum. With those that produce flowering stems, like majoram, these should 
be .cut down to the ground level; like sage, prune back as much as is necessary, even 
if cut into hard wood new growth will soon be made, but the best leaves are on the 
current year's shoots. Mint cut down nearly to the ground; the stalks left will produce 
young shoots for use with late peas; with parsley; gather the best matured leaves. All 
of these, with others, should be laid thinly on trays or sheets of paper in an airy 
shed, or in the open if calm and fine, so they may dry slowly. When quite dry, either 
rub up fine with the hands and put into dry bottles and store in a dry cupboard for 
winter use, or tie into small bundles and hang from the roof of an airy shed or room, 
from which portions can be taken as wanted. 

Parsley is the most used of herbs to-day, and is required the year round. Though 
the dried leaves are better than nothing, it is best gathered fresh. To ensure a supply 
several sowings should be made during the year; the last about July. Well-dug soil 
should be chosen. As winter approaches a few roots should be lifted, planted in boxes 
or large pots and placed in a frame or cold greenhouse to supply leaves during periods 
of frost or snow. Mint is greatly in demand during spring and summer, and it is but 
little trouble to ensure a supply. Mint is a native plant, delighting in damp places 
hence a moist spot should be chosen or ample watering be given. 

Propagation is easily effected by cuttings or divisions in spring, and a new bed 
should be made every third year. Thyme comes next; of this we have the green-leaved 
and the golden-leaved. There is also a silver-leaved variety. These are shrubby plants, 
doing best in the light, dry soil. They make, capital edging plants in the vegetable 
garden. They are easily raised from^ seed in spring, cuttings in spring and summer, 
and division of not too old plants in sparing and autumn. Sage is in gentle demand, and, 
as a rule, one good bush supplies the need. It can be raised from seed or cuttings, 
the latter producing the bushier specimens. The bushes should be renewed every three 
or four years. Savory — both winter and summer — is another bushy herb which asso- 
ciates, in the winter or shrubby form, with the thymes. The summer variety, being an 
annual, must be sown in March. Of majoram also there is an annual and perennial form. 
Sow seeds of the former in March or April; the latter may be propagated by division. 
When not flowering it is a dwarf plant. Tarragon is in occasional demand; it is a 
perennial, rising from the ground each year with a tall stem two or three feet high. It 
does well at the foot of a wall or fence where it can be left alone. Basil is another an- 
nual flavoring herb, needing to be raised under glass, transplanted to pots or boxes and 
planted out in June. After the annual herbs have been cut down the roots may be 
dug up and the ground turned to other account. 


Man is a power plant — a three cylinder engine, in one piece, with self-starting 
device and automatic control. He comes into this world with a supply of vital fluids, 
mental and physical strength sufficient to last many years with proper care. 

The peculiar thing about this three cylinder human engine is, that each cylinder 
generates out of the fuel or food a different kind of energy. One develops physical 
power; another mental; another moral. All three, however, are properly connected, 
and all must be in perfect condition to work in harmony and to produce the best results. 

In most men and women the physical will at times gets out of order, and so act 
as a drag on the other two. At this time the trouble needs to be promptly corrected 
with the right remedy.— ATLAS COMPOUND. 

What affects the general system of the male, much more frequently affects the 
organs of the female, because she is the finer and more complicatedr You may do fairly 
well in spite of the fact that you have some physical ailment, but good health is as nec- 
essary as a keen mind and a good cKarcter. 

Every man ought to know something about a good many things, but above all, he 
must know all that is possible for him to know about the thing he is doing, and the 
business in which he is engaged. 

Some men waste more of their strength in needless fear and worry than they use 
up in work. Cut out fear and worry, and put in more confidence. Study mental con- 
trol, and keep physically fit for work if you want success. 

We must get into right relations with others if we would succeed. Take one thing 
and stick to it. When you are ailing, take the greatest of remedies— ATLAS COM- 
POUND— and you will have reason to feel grateful for prompt action in its aiding 
nature to restore and sustain physical balance, and you can depend on work, persever- 
ance and concentration to do the rest. 


People often laugh at Astrologers when told to do certain things on particular days or 
particular times, but the science was so perfectly known to the ancients that, with a view 
to concentrate and conserve all the good energies of mankind and to avoid the evil in- 
fluences, they laid down certain rules which might appear arbitrary or meaningless, but 
nevertheless, when carefully examined, are most wonderful and striking with regard to 
the knowledge the ancients possessed in occult and physical science. 

The police warns the people at certain times or in certain localities to look out for 
their property, to guard against danger, etc. Poor people and beggers, who have nothing 
to lose, think this advice is silly. Many people (inland) think it silly when the Government 
Weather Bureau sends out a warning to look out for storms, but the sailors on the Great 
Lakes and the Oceans, study these warnings very carefully, and often save vast amounts 
of shipping and life by heeding this advice given in advance. 

In these modern times one is startled to find that the elaborate rites and rituals of the 
ancient Egyptians were in full force at a time when these people had reached their highest 
attainments of enlightenment and power, and at a period to which we even now look back 
on with wonder and admiration at their marvelous achievements. How potent still are 
their antiquated prejudices and traditions, and how steadfastly do we hold to these super- 
stitions in our daily lives, actions and beliefs. But perhaps we can better comprehend the 
mystery if we vv ill try to realize how far away in thought and life are the great masses of 
the highest civiiizption of this twentieth century from the master minds of the ancient 
Egyptians from w )m we seek knowledge today. 

Crime begins with poverty. Povery from insufficient food. Insufficiency of food from 
neglect of agriculture. Therefore a prosperous nation is agricultural. Six days in every 
month the Earth sleeps and must not be disturbed in planting. (These are Leo days.) 
Never spade or plow on Good Fridey. It is a fact that grain upon which animals feed 
most freely will be scarce next harvest, and that which they refuse will be reaped in great 
abundance. If a farmer will steal a little seed and mix with his, it will be well for his 
crop. If a bride will sow a little seed next morning after her marriage, that farm will 
always prosper. If the wife of a man who has planted his field, will rise in the night, 
strip herself naked and run around the field three times, she will impart to the crops her 
own fertility. Of course a barren woman will cause a barren crop. All seed will be steri- 
lized if touched by a menstrous woman. A menstrous woman spoils everything she 
touches. There certainly exists a sympathetic connection between the sower and the seed. 
No man should touch a menstrous woman if he would prosper. Never sow mingled seed in 
the same field (such as pumpkins and corn together.) Peas or beans sown in moist 
weather, boil well. Do not eat grain, peas or beans the same week you plant them, or the 
crop will fail. Seed planted in sevens always do best. Melons, cucumbers or squashes, if 
counted or examined too closely, will cease to thrive. Never step over the vines or they 
will wither. 

Anyone who eats mayapple will spoil a crop. Persons using mayapple (podophyllin) 
as a physic, should not go against growing croos under any circumstances. When cotton 
comes into flower, a little parched rice thrown into the field will cause the balls to swell 
up. Mayapple withers them. A piece of wood from a coffin that has been dug up will 
keep away mice, vermin and caterpillers, in either field or house. A piece of the wood of 
a gallows, or a piece of the rope with which a man was hung, if worn about the person, 
will keep the person from a violent death. A chip cut from the gate or door of a barnyard, 
if boiled in milk, will charm away the milk from that form. To frustrate this charm, 
smear the newly cut places with fresh mud. The old woman's Charm, to make the butter 
come, is to plunge a red-hot poker into the churn, this breakes the witches' spell. 
Peppers grow better if planted by a red-headed person, or person of quick temper. An 
old saying is "Pray and Prosper." By swinging, a person can remove both evil influences 
and disease. It always rains on Good Friday, and rain caught that day will not evaporate. 
Snow water from the last snow in March will cure all manner of sore eyes. A trustworthy 
sign is that if a snake is killed and hang up in the sun it will bring on rain in thirty-six 
hours. An old proverb says, there will be as many floods after Michaelmas Day as the 
Moon was old at that time. New Moon on Saturday and Full Moon on Sunday always 
brings bad weather. New Moon on Mondays always brings fair weather. A fall of snow 
coming in New Moon always lays longer than any other time. From a Roman belief 2000 
years ago, a darkened New Moon betokened rain; a red, wind. The Romans never cut 
timber until the Moon was in the wane, and grafts were always inserted during the in- 
crease. Olives and figs should only be grafted in a "dry" Moon. Grain cut during the 
increase, increases in size. The Romans always boiled down grape juice during a "dark" 
Moon. All vegetables were gathered to keep, during the wane, or "dark" of the Moon. 


These are General Observations and must be taken into consideration when consulting 
my Daily Predictions. 

Sunday is an excellent day to visit friends, listen to lectures (or sermons) , to absorb 
suggestions, rest, observe, do something entirely different from what has been done the 
previous six days. 

Monday is generally an evil day. It will pay to postpone any important matter. Avoid 
moving or change, take no risks. Attend strictly to business, and avoid disputes and ask 
no favors. 

Tuesday is good to push all matters of business. Make the most of opportunities, hire 
servants, or employes, but put no faith in promises. It is a day of hard work. 

Wednesday brings delays, disappointments and bad news, or annoyances. Stick to 
business and be sure you accomplish something. Avoid long journeys, but take short ones. 
A good day to get married. 

Thursday is good to do work for yourself. Good for all financial matters and specula- 
tions, ask favors, travel and collect bills. Women generally meet unpleasantness in family 
and domestic matters and trouble in love affairs on this day. All business will progress. 

Friday is the day for long journeys and success in love affairs, but bad for business and 
marriage. Ask favors, make changes, but make haste slowly. It is a good day for all 
professional men, such as doctors, lawyers, astrologers. A good day to borrow anything. 
Fortunate for those in employ. Look well to the health on this day. Avoid elderly persons. 

Saturday is generally a good day, except to those born in Capricorn. Money is gen- 
erally easy, speculators buoyant and successful. It is a good day for the woman to marry 
who wants her husband to die suddenly. Those in employ will receive favors. Pay strict 
attention to business, avoid law matters and disputes or you will surely lose. Don't plan 
or begin any important matter. Don't move, or begin work of any kind as you will soon 
?hrmgo again and cannot make any headway. Pay your bills "Nhrer work nn Sunday ii 
ail you do will amount l.o naught and will have to be done over again. 

Eggs should be set so that chicks will arrive at new moon. If arranged so they come 
when moon is in a fruitful sign, so much the better. Cancer is best. It takes 21 days for 
hens' eggs to hatch, 28 days for ducks'. In saving seed, that from female fruit will repro- 
duce the largest and finest crop. Small blossoms, or small blossom scars, are male fruit ; 
large blossoms, or blossom scars, are female fruit. Dig root crops for seed in third quarter 
of Moon. They keep longer, are dryer and better. Mushrooms and crabs are best and 
most plentiful at full Moon. Haircutting should be done beforefull Moon. Make 
sauerkraut when Moon is in Pisces (the feet) . It will cook tender and keep sweet. Always 
butcher in new of the Moon and the meat will not shrink up in cooking. Pick apples and 
Dears in the old of the Moon. If bruised the spots will dry up. If bruised in the new of 
Blie Moon spots will rot. Harvest all root crops when Moon is growing old. They keep 
longer and better. If you roof a house at old of Moon the shingles will not warp or turn 
up. Many leaky roofs are caused by shingling when Moon is new. Set fence posts at old 
of Moon and they will not " heave" out. 

Times are bad and sickness more liable to affect when Mercury is in Gemini, Virgo, 
Sagittaurus or Pisces, especially when in Sagittaurus. Times are good and everything 
goes along better when Mars is in either of the above signs, especially Virgo. The best 
position is when Jupiter is in Gemini or Sagittaurus. June is the best month in the year 
for any new operations. February is the worst. Best days of each month is when Moon 
is in constellation of Libra. Worst days when Moon is in Sagittaurus (Constellations are 
30 degrees or 2Vz days previous to Signs.) Thursdays are the best days in the week for 
everything. Monday is the worst. 10 to 12 A. M. are the best hours of the day. Easter 
Sunday is always the first Sunday after the full Moon which happens upon or next after 
March 21st, and if the full Moon happens on Sunday, Easter is the following Sunday. 
Therefore Easter may come as early as March 22d, or as late as April 25th. 

Aries persons are most fortunate in June and July. Thursday is their lucky day, Mon- 
day unlucky. Taurus people are most successful in November and December. Their 
lucky day is Monday, Sunday unlucky. Gemini people are most fortunate in April and 
August. Friday is their lucky day, Sunday unlucky. Cancer people succeed best in the 
months of February and September. Their lucky day is Wednesday, unlucky day is Satur- 
day. Leo persons are most lucky in January and October. The lucky day is Sunday, Tues- 
day is unlucky. Virgo people are most successful in the months of February and Novem- 
ber. Monday is their lucky day, Wednesday is unlucky. Libra people are always fortunate 
in August and December. The lucky day is Monday, Thursdays unlucky. Scorpio people 
are most fortunate in the months of January and July. Their lucky day is Tuesday, 
Mondays are unlucky. , Sagittaurus persons are always most successful in February and 
June. Sundays are lucky, Fridays unlucky. Capricorn persons are most lucky in March 
and November. Wednesdays are lucky, Saturdays are unlucky. Aquarious people are 
fortunate in April and August. Thursdays are lucky, Wednesdays unlucky. Pisces peo- 
ple are most fortunate in May and November. The lucky day is Wednesday, Friday unlucky. 


When you move, take all your furniture, etc., at one time, it is bad to go back for the 
second lot, you will not stay long in your new home. Never move on Saturday. Never 
go back in the same house, or rooms. 

The best days of the year to Marry are January 21st, May 13th, June 8th, October 19th 
and 24th, and November 22nd. The best days of the week are Wednesday, Friday and 
Sunday. Marriages consumated on these days always last. The worst days to marry are 
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays,, especially in May, July, August, and December. 

Cutting off the hair or shaving means a loss of vitality, or electricity and such times 
should be selected as would minimise the losses, hence good days must be fixed for such 
acts. Shaving or hair cutting should be done when the mooni is in Cancer, Pisces, Libra, 
Capricorn, Aquarious, Taurus and Scorpio. To cut the hair or sliave on the fourth day of 
the new moon means ruin (or bad luck) to the mother. On the fourteenth day of new 
moon means trouble for sisters, and on the eighth day means evil on a man's wife. The 
best days of the week (generally) to shave or cut hair are : Monday, Wednesday, and 
Thursday, especially if the Moon is in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces. 

The Persians believe that seeds, or plants transplanted in Sign of Capricorn fail. In 
the market places of Persia a brazen she-goat is displayed at this time to counteract the 
evil influences of Capricorn. They deem Saturn an evil planet. The Sexual Emotions are 
greatest when the Moon is on the wane, ("dark".) Animals should be killed in the^ New 
Moon for then the meat swells in boiling. Sheep should be sheared in the increase, timber 
cut at Full Moon. Cattle and other animals ' 'gelded" when Moon is in Aries, Sagittaurus 
or Capricorn. Setting eggs, sowing seed, grafting and breeding when Moon is in Cancer, 
Scorpio or Pisces. "Weaned in the wane, they grow thin and lean". Grass must be cut at 
Full Moon. Sow Cauliflower in April full. Garlic is the only plant that flurishes in the 
wane of the Moon. Pythagoras says, "when the Moon is in the wane, gather grain and 
fruit to last." Fruit is never "frost killed" in the light of the Moon. A house should be 
shingled in a "dark Moon" to last, so say the people of Kentucky, but an old resident of 
Missouri says that a rail fence laid in a "dark Moon" will soon rot down. A Sioux Indian 
tells me that Earthquakes always occur at Full Moon, also that they (the Sioux) name 
their months (or moons) of the year from that natural product which, by its abundance or 
usefulness,, emphasizes itself for the time being above all other products. The Ojibways 
and Chipawa Indians refer to everything by the Moon. 

It is almost universally believed that witches and evil spirits stir up storms and 
tempests, bringing destruction on some localities and leaving others untouched; ruining 
one man's land and leaving another's unscatched. What more logical than that the 
revengeful hand of some devlish diabolical agent was responsible for such an unfair 
partiality ? Old women, having nothing to do but sit and think, bring evil and sickness 
to their neighbors. To find the means to circumvent or guard against these powers is 
praisworthy. This we cannot deny, however much the mind revolts against this credulity. 
A red silk thread tied to a cow's horn will prevent them losing their milk, in fact any 
unusual mark will dissipate the evil. The dead body of a bull produces bees, in the pro- 
cess of natural decay, and that of a horse wasps. An ass breeds bumblebees; a mule, 
hornets. The Kings, Queens and leaders are bred from the brain. The reason why these 
insects breed from animals is that they never yield themselves to sexual love, nor unnerve 
themselves to the languor of passion, nor bring forth their offspring by the pangs of 
birth, but by their mouths they gather their children from the decay of other things. 
Though none have solved the secret of the Queen bee's wedding, science has unraveled 
the mysteries of her impregnation (?). The hoary traditions and legions of the hive, so 
long catalogued with the miraculous are now made clear and the tragic death of the 
drones accounted for. Prodigious nuptials these, the most fairylike that can be conceived, 
raised high above the impetus of desire, terrible, unique, bewildering, solitary, infinite, 
A swarm of bees will die at once if even looked upon by a menstrous woman. JBees have 
from time immemorial been accredited with great foreknowledge, especially in connection 
with the weather. If they refuse to go out of their hive, or send out scouts, the weather 
will be bad, while going out in large numbers make sure of bright skies. If bees settle in 
a house it is a sure sign of fire, or other disaster. If they settle on dead wood it means 
death in the family of the owner. If a bee fly indoors, company may be expected. If a 
hive of bees are sold for less than they are worth, they will all die. If any of the family 
of a beekeeper die, a piece of crape must be pieced on the hive as a sign of mourning, it 
this is not done all the bees will die through sympathy, not only the bees but all the cattle, 
corn and everything in the house must be touched with some black stuff to notify them of 
the sad event, or other evil will follow. The event of death in the family can be made 
known to the bees by the jingling of keys or beating of a small pan, otherwise another 
death will occur within a vwr. 


How wise we are when the chance has gone and a backward erlanca we cast. 

We know just the thing we should have done when the time to do it is past. 

Astrology is the science of delineating character and judging past, present and fu- 
ture events from the positions of the planets and of the earth in the Zodiac, at any given 
time. It is the key that opens to seekers after knowledge an explanation of the mysteri- 
ous and unchanging laws that govern the universe and all living things. Astrology has 
interested the most advanced races of mankind ever since the reflective faculties of the 
mind were developed, which is evidenced by recorded history and research into the man- 
ners and costumes of past ages. There is more in astrology than the mere writing and 
reading of horoscopes and the delineation of character and vocations, which the casual 
reader does not comprehend. The study of astrology will develop talents that are latent 
and of which persons are unconscious. It will intensify natural intuition and makes per- 
ceptible things which would otherwise have remained obscured. There should be two 
motives in the student taking up the study of astrology. The first is, to thoroughly un- 
derstand one's own nature. The second is, to become of use to those who do not have 
the advantage and opportunity of obtaining this knowledge for themselves. 

No one should hesitate to begin an investigation of this science, for even a super- 
ficial examination will show that there is a "way" in the apparent inequality of man- 
kind. It will show why some persons succeed and others fail. Why some are weak and 
others strong. Why some persons continually quarrel, while with others there is peace, 
quiet and harmony. Sickly sentiment and distaste for" improving the mind is inculcated 
by ready stupid books and vulgar novels, so, by the study of the science of astrology 
is the mind expanded, new and ever rising ideas and thoughts are elevated and the 
pleasures of life realized. If the science of astrology was sufficienty known, very many 
of the evils now afflicting mankind would not prevail; and much pain, sorrow, trouble 
and consequent disappointment now abounding would not exist. Never before in the 
history of the world has the struggle for existence been as fierce as at the present time. 
Never before has mankind been so demoralized and unsettled. Therefore it behooves 
every sensible, thinking man and woman to grasp every means and opportunity to better 
their condition by permanent efforts to rise to the higher places of thought and action. 
Invisible things cannot be seen, yet invisible things, such as gas, the producing power 
of the sun, the vital power of plants and animals, thought, feeling, phychological influ- 
ence, electricity and many other things too numerous to mention, are nevertheless facts 
and exist in spite of the incapacity of ordinary persons to explain them. The person who 
denies the existence of anything beyond his comprehension is as credulous as one who 
believes everything without discrimination. Both of these persons are slaves to opoinion 
or limited in their intercourse with the world. That a practical astrologer can select 
these times with unerring accuracy has been proven by hundreds of years' testimony in 
that direction. The man who dares not follow his own judgments, but constantly takes 
the advice of others, becomes at last a moral weakling and an intellectual dwarf. He is 
in fact a mere fragment of a human being, carried about the world, an insignificant 
cipher. A sober, industrious person with fair abilities may fail at times by following 
his judgment, but such a person must eventually succeed. Know your work, then do it. 

Astrology is the Science which teaches of the Effects of the Planets on Human Life 
and the Things of the Earth. By it we can foretell future events according to the posi- 
tions of the Heavenly Bodies at the time of Birth. That it is The Oldest Science in Ex- 
istence is proved by the fact that The Astrological Signs have been found in ancient 
Temples known to be more than ten thousand years old. Astrology today is based on 
sound mathematical calculation the result of thousands of years of occult study and 
investigation. Every person bom on this Earth is ruled by some Planet and Sign of the 
Zodiac. As these Planets and N Signs are ever changing in their aspects, no two persons 
can be born exactly alike, even twins born a few minutes apart will have different 
character, disposition and temperment. It is this influence that causes the great divers- 
ity* of human life. That there are proper and improper times for the transaction of all 
the important affairs of life all admit, but few explain Astrology explains these mat- 
ters with unfailing accuracy. Many of the brightest men of the world today are guided 
in all their important matters by Astrology. The believers in Astrology are Men and 
Women of soaring intellect, not blinded by ignorant prejudice. It ought to be the 
refuge of man in every station of life. All can draw comfort from its predictions when 
under the evils inflicted by hostile fate, or receive greater stimulus in the struggle for 
Fortune's favors. 

Astrology is a Science and an Art. It is older than the ruins in Egypt or India. It 
has been abused by the ignorant and debased by superstition. Its phenomena is the ex- 
hibition of The Highest Forces of Nature. It will show a Man or Woman, Boy or Girl, 
what Profession, Art, Business, or Vocation in Life they are Natually adapted for. It 
will elevate wayward characters and show them how to use their Talents and Rise in 
The World. Thousands have acknowledged it to have been their Guide to Hono^ 
Wealth, Health, Happiness and Success. 


Diseases among the poultryman's flock form one of the ever-present dangers and 
by their ravages often seriously affect the income from the fowls. Disease has been 
defined as that condition of life which departs from the normal, and while the appli- 
cation of this, in its strictest sense, would eliminate most all chickens it does not be- 
come of great moment to the poultry keeper until the birds are in need of medical at- 

The more common diseases which affect chickens are colds and roup, canketf, 
diarrhoea and chicken pox. Limber neck is quite prevalent in the South, but it is only 
slightly known in this latitude. Of these diseases colds and roup are by far the most 
common. But they yield quite readily to good treatment and are still easier to prevent. 
It is quite safe to say that most colds and roup are caused by improper housing. 

Chickens normally have a temperature of from 102 to 105, and when let out of the 
house in the early morning to face a chill wind the effect is much the same as it would 
be on a human who went out in his night clothing. A still more common cause is drafts 
in the house while the birds are on the roost. 

As the first cure should be prevention, the poultryman should seek the cause of 
colds and remove it. The most probable cause is from confining the birds, which nature 
prepared for a life in the open, in a house devoid of ventilation. 

Poultry houses in this climate should never be inclosed with glass windows. The 
entire front of this house should be open throughout the year, except on those days 
when the wind is cold and blowing directly into the front of the house, or when the 
temperature is low enough to freeze the drinking water inside the house. At these 
times the only protection the fowls need is a cloth curtain of the cheapest muslin, 
stretched over the openings, whether doors or windows. 

Poultrymen throughout the northern tier of states, from Maine to Washington, 
have adopted this kind of ventilation and they seldom find it necessary to close the 
cloth curtains, except when it snows directly into the house or when freezes. 

As a cure for colds or roup, the best known remedy is the use of permanganate of 
potash, as much as will lay on a dime, to a gallon of water, and allowing the fowls 
no other water to drink. This will usually effect a cure, but in advanced stages it may 
be necessary to squirt a few drops of kerosene oil up the nostrils of the affected birds 
with a small oil can. This treatment may be repeated daily, keeping the permanganate 
water before them and allowing none other. 

The disese often gets such a start that the whole flock is infected before the 
poultryman discovers it. Colds always are accompanied by a running of nostrils, but 
roup may be dry and merely clog the nostrils without the discharge. It may be 
discerned through a naseous odor, once smelled never to be forgotte. The head usunally 
swells ad the bird's eyes often may become closed. In this advanced stage it is safest 
to kill the bird and burn it. Specially valuable birds may be saved by an injection of 
diphtheria anti-toxin. 

Canker will not be found unless the bird's mouth is examined. In advanced stages 
the fowls will not be able to eat, and their may be a hard, cheesy growth along the 
sides of the bill. The cheesy growth should be scraped away and pure peroxide of 
hydrogen applied to the spots two or three times daily, with a small amount of chlorate 
of potash in the drinking water. 

Chicken pox should be treated by applying a touch of iodine to the sores and 
covering with carbolated vaseline. 

Scaly legs, while doing no particular damage to the fowls, signify shiftlessness on 
the part of the poultryman, and never will be tolerated by the buyer of pure bred stock. 
Dipping the legs once a week in kerosene oil will kill the parasites and allow the old 
scales to drop off and to be replaced with a new coat. 

Diarrhoea may be due to any one of many causes, such as improper or impure 
food, a quick change of diet, too much meat, too much greens of certain kinds or too 
much oil or linseed meal in the mash. A teaspoonful of castor oil containing five drops 
of turpentine to each fowl will correct the trouble. The birds should be given a feed 
of charcoal once a week. This is the one great bowel corrective. 

Little chicks usually become infected with gapes before they become a month old 
If they are raised on board floors they will not have gapes. Land known to be in- 
fected should be plowed and planted and the chicks kept off such land for a year 
The gape worm is the only parasite having the male permanency attached to the female 
and breeds very rapidly. When the windpipe becomes clogged with these worms the 
chicks die of suffocation. Treatment is not effective. 

It is the desire of the American public to buy a fowl which has been in perfect 
health previous to the time it was killed This is the strongest argument for the 
backyard flock and probab y is one of the principle reasons why the number of this 
class of poultry raisers is increasing so rapidly.

ATLAS COMPOUND is a Wonderful. 
Medicine. It is a Compound, in right pro- 
portions of well known drugs and I herewith 
publish the Formula of ingredients and give 
the "Key" as published in the UNITED 
STATES DISPENSARY of each article 
used, as follows :— Extract IPECAC ROOT, 
From Brazil. It is a Diaphoretic and Ex- 
pectorant. A Stimulant to the Stomach ex- 
citing- the appetite and facilitating digestion. It loosens 
up slimy, catarrhal matter and in large doses causes nau- 
sea and vomiting. It is free from narcotic properties and 
is not a habit forming drug, especially fitted for use when 
no other effect than emptying the stomach is desired. It 
has been employed by the natives of Brazil for Stomach 
Troubles and has been known there sinces 1672. Until 
very lately it has always been employed as a Secret Remedy 
with great success in Stomach and Bowel troubles such 
as Indigestion, Dysentery, Diarrhoeas, etc. It has a 
general Stimulant effect upon the whole digestive tract. 
It is also used in Croup, Bronchitis and Diseases of the 
Gastro-Intestinal Mucus Membranes. 

Alps of Switzerland and other elevated regions of Europe. 
Gentian possesses in a high degree Tonic Powers. It excites the appetite and 
invigorates digestion. It has been known from the remotest antiquity. Many 
of the preparation handed down by the Greeks and Arabians contained it in 
their ingredients. It is used in all cases of Debility of the Digestive Organs 
where a General Tonic is required, such as Dyspepsia, Gout, Amenorrhoea, 
Hysteria, Scrofula, etc., and there is scarcely a Complaint (of Digestive Trouble) 
in which it can not be^ advantageously given under all cicumstances. 

ALOIN. Socotrine Aloes is produced in the Island of Socotra. This 
is the Original Aloes having been produced there as early as the time of 
Alexander the Great, over 300 years before Christ. It is now produced in 
Barbados, Bombay, Muscat and Zanzibar, Africa. In Arabia it is known as 
Jayef Gesheeshah, or Sacred Medicine. Aloin is the pure active principle of 
Aloes. Aloes was known to ancients as having a peculiar affinity for the large 
intestines and pelvic organs , not as a cathartic, but as a muscular exhalent, 
or evacuant. It Quickens the Circulation and produces a General Warmth to 
the system. A peculiarity of Aloes is that an increase, or over dose is not 
attended with a corresponding increase of effect. Its tendency to irritate 'the 
bowels and rectum is modified, or over come by combining it with an Alkali 
(such as Bi-Carbonate of Soda). It is an Excellent Remedy for Costiveness 
(Constipation) attended with Torpor of the Digestive Organs. It is supposed 
to stimulate the Hepatic Secretions and acts very happily in Jaundice even 
after Calomel has failed. It is useful in Ascarides (Round Stomach Worms) 
and Hemorrhoids. In Amenorrhoea (Suppression of the Menses) it is per- 
haps more frequently employed than any other remedy and enters into almost all 
preparations resorted to in that complaint. 

SODA. Pure Bi-Carbonate of Soda is a cooling, mild alkali used medicin- 
ally to Neutralize the acids of the system. It is useful in Croup and to promote 
the Expulsion of Mucus Membranes and in Pneumonia (Catarrhal Troubles) it 
acts on the principle of removing the excess fibrin from the blood in inflamations. 

It also lessens the sugar in the urine of Diabetic patients and modifies the 
action of acids in the Digestive Organs. 

GINGER. This is a native plant of Hindustan and East India, also cul- 
tivated in the West Indies. The medical virtues exist in the roots. It is 
Agreeably Aromatic and Penetrating, Spicy and Pungent. It is a Greatful 
Stimulant and Carminative especially useful in Dyspepsia, Flatulent Colic and 
a feeble state of the alimentary canal attendant upon Atonic Gout (Rheumatism). 
Is it warming, Stops Fermentation in the Stomach and expells the gases. 


The following- brief suggestions will help to enable those who use them in case of 
need to render efficient first aid in an emergency as they are practically applied in all 
parts of the world. People are liable to be called upon at any time to take charge o± 
an injured person, and the information given should be read carefully with a view as 
far as possible of impressing the most important points upon the memory and if prop- 
erly used, will afford much relief in time of need. 


Move the patient to an airy place, keep by-standers at a distance. Handle the pa- 
tient gently and quietly. Place in a comfortable position. Unless the head is injured, 
have same on a level with the body. Loosen the collar, waist bands and all tight cloth- 
ing. If the patient vomits, turn on one side with the head low. U bleeding, stop at 
once. Cover and dress all wounds quickly. 


Severe shock shows in the coldness of the body, feeble pulse, half closed eye lids, 
sometimes insensibility. Send for a surgeon at once. Keep patient warm with a blanket 
or coats whether winter or summer. Apply hot water bottles. Apply mustard plasters 
to the soles of the feet and to the wrists. Rub the arms and legs. If conscious, give 
warm drinks of tea, coffee or milk. 


Bleeding from slight wounds should be covered with antiseptic clean cotton or gauze. 
Bandage firmly. When blood is dark red, flows freely and does not spurt, it shows 
bleeding from veins. Lay patient down. Loosen all tight clothing, garters and straps. 
Elevate wounded part. If severe press on wound with hard pad of cle#n gauze or cot- 
ton. Apply cold by means of ice. If this does not stop bleeding apply tight bandage 
near wound but on side farthest from the heart. In stopping bleeding by pressure, re- 
member that flow of blood in veins is toward the heart; in arteries from the heart. 

Bleeding from Arteries — The blood is bright red in color and comes in spurts. This 
means danger, act quickly, send for a surgeon. In the meantime lay patient down. Cut 
away clothing and expose wounds.^. Elevate wounded limb, apply pressure immediately 
by thumb and finger covered with antiseptic gauze or a clean towel. Replace this by 
crowding gauze into the wound and holding it there by tight bandage. 

If bleeding does not stop compress arteries with tight bandage near wound, but be- 
tween the heart and the wound. If arteries passes over bone press there with hands. If 
not, use tight bandage. When bleeding is stopped give warm drinks of tea, coffee or 
milk. After bleeding has been stopped cover the wound at once with antiseptic clean 
gauze or absorbent cotton and bandage. A soiled cover is worse than none at all, and 
may cause blood poisoning. 

Fainting from Bleeding — Lay the patient on the floor or couch, lower the head, keep 
the limbs elevated; apply warmth. Bleeding will start again when consciousness is re- 
stored. In bleeding from a socket of a tooth pack with Plaster of Paris. 

Nose Bleed — Lay patient on back, raising arms above head. Apply ice or colcL water 
to forehead, nose and back of neck. Let patient snuff solution containing one tablespoon- 
ful of salt in a pint of water. If this fails stuff cotton into the nostrils. The nose must 
not be blown for several hours. 

Bleeding from Lungs — Place patient on floor in a sitting posture. Give small pieces 
of cracked ice, also small portion of salt mixed with vinegar. Place wet cloths on chest 
or stomach. 

To Arrest Bleeding from Arteries of the Temple— Apply pressure over the artery 
with thumb. 

To Arrest Bleeding from Arteries of the Cheek— Apply pressure to the jaw bone so 
as to compress artery. 

To Arrest Bleeding from Arteries of the Neck— Apply pressure with the thumb at 
root of the neck near collar bone outside the windpipe and press with fingers ag-ainst 
back of neck. 6 

To Arrest Bleeding in the Upper Arm— Apply pressure against the collar bone on 
the inner side and also just below the biceps muscle.

Catarrh is an inflammation of the tissues. Catarrh df the nose and throat is generally 
the beginning of the trouble, then it works in Tubes of the Lungs, that is Bronchitis. 
Consumption is caused by Catarrh of the Lungs themselves; they get so full of the mucus, 
slimy matter that they actually rot away. 

Dyspepsia is Catarrh of the Stomach. Heart Disease Is caused by Catarrh of the 
Heart. Bright's Disease is Catarrh of the Kidneys. Cystitis is Catarrh of the Bladder. 
Scirrhosis (Cancer) is Catarrh of the Liver. Colitis is Catarrh of the Bowels. Amenor- 
rhea, Dysmenorrhea, Menorrhagia and Menophlania are simply Catarrh of the Womb. 

When you have Catarrh of any part, that part cannot act, the Blood becomes stagnant 
and cannot circulate, the Vitality declines, and you soon get into such a state that you are 
liable to absorb anything that comes along: Small Pox, Yellow Fever, Typhoid Fever, 
Meningitis and all Nervous Disorders. 

ATLAS COMPOUND LOOSENS UP this Mucus, Slimy, Catarrhal Matter, wher- 
ever it has taken hold, cleans out the system and makes every part of you as good as new. 
You cannot be healthy and strong if you are all clogged up and your organs are all 
coated with this nasty, foul Catarrhal matter. If you are ailing in any way take ATLAS 

ATLAS COMPOUND is certainly a wonderful Medicine and its sale phenomenal. 
No other medicine ever had such an enormous sale in such a short time. There must be 
a reason for it and there is.

This is the original book on SOLAR 
BIOLOGY, and the only thoro system for 
reading character from the signs of the 
Zodiac and the positions of _ the Planets. 

We know of nothing more helpful and in- 
teresting. This is the only work of its kind.

author's portrait, and tables of the moon and 
planets from 1820 to date. 
This work tells what is in man and how derived. Tells how to cultivate self and 
make the most and best of life. Tells one, when a child is born, what kind of training 
it should have, to what diseases it is liable, how to avoid or how to cure when already 
developed. Reveals a part of the grand body to which each individual belongs and the 
consequent mental tendencies, physical fitness, natural sphere and highest and fittest 
use in the world. 

It enables parents to know just what their children are best adapted for, and how 
to educate them and is also a guide in the preservation of health and strength and an 
important aid to success and to the attainment of the great object in life; viz., useful- 
ness and happiness. It also aids in prolonging the life of old and young.

Your birthday is the most important 
day in your life. And yet how few peo- 
ple realize the importance and signifi- 
cance of that event ! Out of all eterni- 
ty, how came it about that you were 
born just when you were? Wise m°n 
who have thought on this question say 
that this cannot be due to mere chance ; 
there must be some reason, some law, 
at work. They set about ascertaining 
this law— which relates to the time of 
birth — and discovered it in the science 
of Astrology. 

Every one is born under slightly dif- 
ferent influences and circumstances ; so 
no two people are exactly alike. This, 
says Astrology, is because the aspects 
of the heavens — the influences brought to bear upon the infant at the mo- 
ment of birth — are so different. 

To test the claims of astrology, it is only necessary to have a personal 
reading made of the life. For this, the exact date of birth is necessary — so 
that the various combinations of the planets may be figured out accurately; but 
while this individual reading is, of course, by far the most satisfactory — 
nevertheless, certain signs and aspects are said to influence all born on a 
certain day, in some degree. 

THE ASTROLOGICAL BIRTHDAY BOOK contains a character read- 
ing for every day in the year based on observations of the aspects of the 
heavenly bodies on the day of birth. 

It is useful as a guide to the course in life which you should pursue to 
achieve the greatest degree of success by the use of your known talents, and 
by the development of your latent or potential abilities in the field of en- 
deavor to which you are naturally adapted. More than being useful, it is a 
source of much entertainment at a gathering to read aloud the characters 
of those present. 

The book contains 264 pages printed on antique wove book paper, attrac- 
tively bound in cloth, with jacket printed in colors. Price, $1,25 by mail, 





ATLAS COMPOUND acts locally on the lining membranes of the stomach and intest- 
ines, loosens the mucus and slime formation and corrects fermentation, thus cleansing 
the walls and leaving them in an absorbative condition, promoting the secretion of nature's 
digestive fluids. Where there is a disturbance of the stomach and intestines of long stand- 
ing, it may not be corrected in a short time, but ATLAS COMPOUND aids nature to re- 
move the cause and correct the trouble. Several months may be requred in some cases, 
but it is better to take small doses for along time than larger doses. To eradicate disease, 
purify the blood and tone up the system is what ATLAS COMPOUND does if given time. 


Take ATLAS COMPOUND three times daily with an abiding faith that it may make 
you well and follow the directions in a general way. ATLAS COMPOUND is not a cathar- 
tic, but if too large a dose is taken and bowels move too freely it indicates that the medicine 
is taking hold and removing the slime and mucous from the stomach and intestines too fast. 
This poisonous slime cannot be absorbed into the system without very detrimental effects 
and must pass off through the bowels. ATLAS COMPOUND leaves no harmful effects. It 
does not contain acids, potash, mercury, opiates or poison of any kind. 

During normal conditions of health and regular morning habit, the poisonous substances 
undergo chemical changes and are finally carried off through the skin and bowels. But in 
many people the natural and proper elimination does not take place and this failure causes 
various disturbances, such as imperfect digestion in the stomach or bowels, constipation 
and inactivity of the liver or spleen and certain nervous disturbances which lead to the 
existance of Rheumatic Conditions. 


The Blood is Life and ATLAS COMPOUND aids nature to carry off the waste ma- 
terial in the body and remove from the blood and system all impurities. When the slime 
and mucous are removed from the stomach and intestines, the food will be digested and 
properly assimilated, the nerves become strong and active and the physical balance restored 
and the vigor of health and strength what nature intended and what you desire. 

Keep physically fit for work if you want to succeed. Good blood, strong nerves and 
elastic muscles are the secret of old age because they regulate and control every part of 
the body. When the life blood is poluted or poisoned with fermented matter or corruption 
it looses its nutritive health sustaining powers. 

ATLAS COMPOUND is an excellent blood purifier, is safe, reliable and effective. It 
does not shock the nerves. It gently and thorougly cleanses the blood of all impurities and. 
stimulates the debilitated organs, acting as a corrective in all depleted conditions. It acts 
by increasing the appetite and the digestion becomes normal. It often acts like magic, 
children require very small doses mixed with fruit, sauce or scraped apple. Sick, puny 
children as well as elderly people become fat as the result of taking ATLAS COMPOUND. 


Nervousness in many people is due to poor digestion and constipation. Repose and re- 
laxation at meals, clear conscience and avoid worry, black coffee and indulgence in del- 
icacies and pastries are to be remembered. Be cheerful at all times and especially so dur- 
ing meals. There are certain disturbances of the human organs which irritate and torture 
men and women, which sometimes estrange them from friends in a social way and Indigest- 
ion and Dyspepsia is such an affliction. This often may cause a grouch, yet the heart may 
love humanity. There are many kinds of Dyspepsia but they all produce the same effect, 
and the greatest of all correctives is ATLAS COMPOUND. 





VEGETABLE COMPOUND is a scientific combination of antiseptic substances. It is 
a sure Preventative of all Skin Disorders. It is endorsed by ladies and gentlemen of re- 
finement wherever used. 

VEGETABLE COMPOUND is made from pure Cocoanut Oil, Extract of Soap Bark 
and Oil of Eucalyptus, combined with medical properties for all skin eruptions, pimples, 
red, rough and oily skin, dry and falling hair, itching scalp and all baby blemishes. It is the 
best Baby Soap made. 

VEGETABLE COMPOUND contains no animal oil, no diseased fat, no rancid grease, 
or dangerous alkalies to poison the blood or injure the skin. It gives a rich creamy lather 
with an invigorating feeling and refreshing odor. No other soap ever compounded can be 
compared with it. 

VEGETABLE COMPOUND is recommended by leading physicians and surgeons every- 
where, not only as a Toilet Soap, but for bath and nursery. It is an antiseptic against 
contageous diseases and used to disinfect the hands and for cleaning cuts and sores. 

VEGETABLE COMPOUND is recommended for pimples, blackheads, wrinkles, undue 
redness of face and nose, and other complexion defects. It imparts, to the skin that 
charming freshness and velvety smoothness so greatly desired. Its beneficial qualities to 
ladies and infants are marvelous, being endorsed by the leading physicians and surgeons as 
a soap which rapidly allays all irritations of the skin. 

AS A TOILET SOAP for the Complexion, it is unequaled. It stimulates the skin and 
prevents secretions such as Blackheads and Pimples. It heals Chapped, Rough and Red 
Hands. Removes Tan, heals Sunburn and Chafing. 

FOR THE BATH it has no equal. It is soothing and refreshing and leaves the skin 
soft and velvety. It not only cleanses the body, but it removes all eruptions and will banish 
Eczema, Salt Rheum, Hives, Herpes, Tetter and Ivy Poison. 

FOR THE SCALP and for strengthening the hair by removing the germs that destroy 
it, the Compound has no equal. It is a sure preventative against parasites and microbes 
that effect unclean hair brushes and combs. It removes crust, scale, dandruff and scurvy. 
For Shampooing it cannot be surpassed. 

FOR THE NURSERY it allays all itching, inflamation, rash and chafing and on account 
of its healing and disinfecting properties, it keeps the children's skin healthy and smooth. 

AS A HEALING SALVE it will be highly efficient, by making a stiff lather and apply- 
ing to Chilblanes, Burns, Corns, Ingrowing Nails and for Cleaning Cuts, Old Sores and 
Ulcers. It makes a delightful and lasting lather for shaving and on account of its Anti- 
septic properties, prevents Barbers' Itch, Ringworms and all Inflamations of the face. 

IT IS A PERFECT SOAP. It will Remove all dirt, oil, stains, ink, grease, rust, 
mildew, etc., etc., not only from the hands and skin but from clothing, carpets and laces. 
It will also clean kid gloves, belts and leather goods. Removes grease from coat collars 
and stains from marble, bric-a-brac and paint. 

THEATRICAL PEOPLE whose skin is put to the hardest usage, keep up their strength 
and freshness with DR. MAC DONALD'S VEGETABLE COMPOUND, Otherwise the 
wrinkles would come and their possessors would be "hors de combat", in other words "on 
the shelf," too old looking. When your livelihood depends on your looks you are pretty 
particular about your skin. 

THE VALUE OF A GOOD TOILET SOAP in the promotion of health is too well 
understood to require discussion. During life, the skin, in virtue of its continually under- 
going reproduction and decay, as well as being an outlet for certain excrementious mater- 
ials from the body, is constantly throwing off from its external layer, as effete and useless 
matter, minute scales. These, mingling with the oily secretions of the cutanous glands 
and the saline and aqueous matter of the perspiration, acquire sufficient adhesiveness to 
form an extraneous layer upon the surface of the body, which, unless daily removed by 
washing and friction, chokes the chanels of perspiration and the oily glands and materially 
interfere with the general functions of the skin.

There are three distinct sources for an accumulation of gas in the stomach. 
The first and most common one is the decomposition of the food. When anything 
decomposes a part of the substance is given off in the form of gas. This is true 
whether the substance happens to be in the stomach or anywhere else. Whenever de- 
composition occurs in the stomach the accumulated gas cannot find any easy escape 
from the stomach, hence inflation occurs. The stomach will become enormously dis- 
tended, and unless the gas is eructated through the oesophagus the distention is liable 
to become great before relief can be obtained. 

The second frequent source of gas in the stomach is the chemical action upon 
alkalies. The stomach naturally contains acid. It is liable to contain an over 
quantity of acid. Many kinds of food taken into the stomach are alkaline in their 
reaction. The acid and the alkali coming together will produce effervescence, which 
liberates a gas. People who are much troubled with belching of gas immediately 
after eating are suffering from this kind of gaseous inflation of the stomach. 

The third source of gas in the stomach is from nervous shock. A sudden 
shock of the nervous system especially in those who are troubled with weak digestion 
will produce an immediate change in the fluids of the stomach to the extent that 
large quantities of gas will be immediately evolved. This happens with surprising 
quickness. A sudden fright or fit of anger will set some hysterical people to eruc- 
tating gas in an instant. 

As for the treatment of these three forms of gaseous trouble in the stomach 
the best is prevention. In the first form, which depends on delayed digestion, the 
food ought never to be taken into the stomach during fatigue. Only small quanti- 
ties of food should be eaten at any one time, and should be carefully chewed. Every- 
thing possible should be done to procure rapid digestion. Nothing will help this 
trouble quicker than Atlas Compound, and quick relief is always found by taking 
a few tablets. 



Backache does not occur in every case of kidney trouble. Often the pains and 
ills that attend kidney trouble are so far from the kidneys themselves that the only 
certain proof that the kidneys are out of order is the appearance of the urine. 
Learn what these changes in the urine indicate and serious or fatal kidney disease 
may be warded off. 

Of course the first thing to know is what is the appearance of the urine in 
£ood health. While individuals vary somewhat, the following average table is a 
.good guide: 


Color — Pale yellow to amber. 
Appearance — Clear. 

Weight — Only a trifle heavier than water. 
Amount passed — Three to four pints daily. 
Odor — Pungent or acid, but not offensive. 
Passages — At will during the day, rarely at night. 
Solids — Dissolved and invisible. 

Healthy urine is slightly acid, not enough to burn or scald and does not stain 
i;he linen. 



THE SUN. The hour of the Sun is good for asking favors, writing letters, signing papers, deeds, wills, 
leases, contracts, etc., and for buying goods to resell. It insures success in any uncertain transaction This 
hour acts as a medium between Jupiter and Mars hours. Fires and accidents of a fiery nature generally occur in 
the Sun hour. Whatever is done in this hour is very apt to stand. Wills, contracts and other important matters 
made at this hour are very seldom broken. Large business transactions and anything relating to railroads, mines, 
building, etc., and everything connected with the government, political affairs and corporations, should be at- 
tended to in this hour. The Sun hour is favorable to popularity and friendship. Good for business but bad to 
obtain loans. Seek employment at this hour and deal with those in authority. The conversation during this 
hour is generally on business matters, position, promotions and political affairs. This is a Positive hour. 

VENUS. The hour of Venus is also good for all purposes, especially for all dealings with the opposite sex, 
proposing marriage, asking favors, taking medicine, collecting bills, feasting, signing papers, traveling by land. 
Those of your opposite sex will never refuse you anything in this hour. Mistakes are seldom made at this time. 
The conversation during this hour always relates to art, music, wine and women, eating, love, dress, tasty and 
cheerful things. It is a good time to visit places of amusement for enjovment, or to purchase fancy things and 
deal with lovable and affectionate people. Push all love affairs in this hour. This is a Positive hour. 

MERCURY. The hour of Mercury is good for writing letters, signing papers and for all literary affairs, 
taking medicine, and is good for all scientific affairs a: d occult thought. Good to plan and think. Many quar- 
rels, controversies and arguments occur at this time and many unpleasant things are often said. It is a good hour 
for sharpers, fakirs and thieves to work. Look out for them. It is an uncertain, changeable hour. Ask questions 
during this hour, as all people are talkative and easily approached at this time, and can very easily be made to 
change their minds. This hour, while very uncertain, is good for all things that require to be done quickly. Con- 
versation at this hour is apt to be active but of no serious import, generally connected with intellectual affairs, 
social matters ; the health and conversation often takes a quick turn for good or evil. This is a Negative hour. 

THE MOON. The hour of the Moon is good for many purposes— traveling on water, beginning short 
journeys, dealing with women, making researches, asking questions, making new aquaintances, visiting, etc. A 
friend made at this hour is a friend indeed. Hotel keepers are generally fortunate at this hour, as are all persons 
dealing with the public. It is a changeable hour and is favorable to all moveable things and people, such as 
travel, travelers, visiting, agents, shipping and for all business pei'taining to liquids. People are generally waver- 
ing at this hour and may be easily induced to change their minds. Matters considered favorable should be 
clinched at once and not left unfinished, or the matter may be lost. Have matters in writing that are made at 
this hour, as promises are not reliable and persons uncertain at this time. People are always restless at this hour, 
changeable, discontented, rambling and unsteady. I)o not make any move that you want to be permanent, at 
this time. The conversation at this hour is apt to be about travel, removals, water or liquids, the insane and all 
matters of a common and changeable nature. This is a Negative hour. 

SATURN. The hour of Saturn is very evil. It is the direct opposite of Jupiter and unfavorable for all 
purposes, yet it is of ten good for those persons who have Saturn for their ruling planet, also for coal and junk 
dealers. These persons often make good bargains in a Saturn hour. (It is also good for finding minerals by 
Saturn persons only). It is a very unfavorable time for taking medicines and many deaths occur at this hour, 
especially of elderly persons. Saturn signifies death. It is a barren, deceitful hour, and seldom anything good 
occurs at this time. Conversation at this hour generally relates to something weary, earthly, melancholy, gloomy, 
sickness, death, deceit, common metals, ores, old and dirty places, cellars, mines, etc. This hour generally 
brings about transactions with mistrustful, elderly, conservative, greedy, unclean people, or slow tedious transac- 
tions. Unfavorable results are apt to follow things begun at this time. Do not trust people in this hour, nor rely 
on professed friendship, or you will regret it. Sell anything, especially real estate or anything pertaining to the 
earth in this hour. This is a Positive hour. 

iJUPITER. The hour of Jupiter is good for all purposes, especially if he is your Ruling Planet. This hour 
is good for asking favors of rich persons, banks, seeking employment, collecting bills, buying anything, speculat- 
ing for a rise, gambling or playing for chance, or races. All persons are lenient at this hour, very generous and 
benevolent, free and open-hearted. You can get money from a miser in this hour. This is the hour to exert your 
influence over others for gain, raise money if necessary and ask favors of prominent people. Conversation during 
this hour always bears upon money matters, precious metals, traffic, profit and gain, seed, banks, horses, cattle. 
This is a Positive hour. 

MARS. The hour of Mars is very unreliable. It is an evil hour, but not as bad as the Saturn hour. The 
hour of Mars brings danger, accidents from metals, battles, assaults and slanders. Railroad wrecks and explosions 
always occur in this hour. Liars, thieves and evildoers are always active in this hour. Avoid quarrels, keep 
away from dangerous places and people at this time. It is very easy to pick a quarrel or a fight in a Mars hour. 
This hour is most favorable for dishonesty and unreliable reports. People always feel independent at this hour 
and are not easily discouraged, and not as apt to submit to dictation as at other times. People who cater to evil 
persons are always successful in this hour. It is a good hour for all fiery, bold, courageous transactions, in which 
dangerous results are liable to follow. The conversation at this time is always spirited, bold, courageous, argu- 
ment ve and liable to lead to quarrelsome results. This is a Positive hour. 


King Solomon said: " To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose." It must be observed 
that all days are not good and evil alike. A day that may be good for one purpose, may be bad for another, and 
vice- versa Some days are good for several purposes, while others are good for little or nothing. On good days 
we should make the first move ourselves, on evil days keep quiet and let others make the first move. Choose your 
purpose and then the Day and Hour. 

The good and evil Planetary influences as they occur throughout the year, can in a general way be relied 
upon in all the ordinary affairs of every day life. Opportunities are continually lost for want of decision at the 
proper time. The operations of Nature are so mathematically exact, that under similar conditions from like 
causes, she produces like effects. Thus by a curious disposition of cause and effect, certain persons are found to 
have lucky and unlucky days. It is a matter of history that such days do exist both for individuals and families. 
Any transaction begun under evil influences will invariably result unfavorably. Although it is not generally 
known, all«the most successful people in the world conduct their affairs upon a Planetary basis. Planetary influ- 
ences affect every person every day, and while you may not be able to avoid all the influences of evil days, you 
can so arrange your affairs by this DAILY GUIDE as not to bring new events of importance under their disturbing 
influence. There is no question as to the value of these Predictions if you wish for a favorable result to an under- 
taking. You can not afford to neglect an opportunity, or leave to chance the result of anything of importance. 

The Daily Guide shows when it is best to do or not to do certain^things, such as Buying or Selling, Beginning 
New Enterprises, Signing Papers, Writing Letters, Traveling, Asking Favors, Getting Married, Dealing with the 
Opposite Sex, Pushing Love Affairs, Seeking Business, Speculating, etc., FROM PLANETARY INFLUENCES. 

The Daily Guide is printed for every day in the year, in Mac Donald's Farmers Almanac Price Twenty Cents.

The following is a simple mode of rendering water almost as cold as ice; "Let the 
y r, pitcher, or vessel used for water be surrounded with one or more folds of coarse 
cotton kept constantly wet. The evaporation of the water will carry off the heat from 
th*j inside and reduce it to a freezing point." 

A wooden bucket is a handy thing to have about the dairy, especially when calves, 
have to be feci milk that must be warmed and carried some distance. Milk once heated 
to the right temperature and carried out in a wooden bucket will remain warm for a 
much longer time than if a metal pail is used. Both should be kept clean, free from 
bad eria. 

A sheep can be fattened on food abounding in starch and sugar, but wool cannot 
be n.ade of these alone. Its fibre is made largely of flesh-forming elements. The blue 
grass or clover of the summer pasture yields this sufficiently, but in the winter oats, 
wheat, middlings and bran should be fed with corn, if that grain is preferred. 

It is wrong to expect the cow to yield a large profit simply because she is well 
br»,d. She must have feed and care or the breeding will amount to nothing. 

It is a well known fact that the cow that makes the largest profit is given the best 
care and most comfortable shelter. 

FOR NERVOUSNESS.— A salt bath is very good for nervousness. It will stimulate 
the circulation of the blood so that the whole body will feel invigorated. 


ATLAS COMPOUND is a combination of standard digestive and intestinal reme- 
dies suitable for every form of indigestion, from the simple attack caused by some in- 
descretion in eating to the more advanced, severe and chronic cases of long standing 
which seem to yield promptly to this great corrective— ATLAS COMPOUND. 

In all cases where there is inactivity of the Liver, Biliousness or obstinate Consti- 
pation of the Bowels with Stomach disorders, one box of Dr. MacDonald's Special 
AC-SO Tablets should be ordered with ATLAS COMPOUND.

The first age of infancy, which endures for four years, agreeing in number with 
the quadrennial periods of the moon, is consequently adapted to her, presenting rapidity 
of growth, and possessing a highly variable habit. Its mental incompleteness is like- 
wise in accordance with its familiar relation to the moon and her operative influence. 
The age after this continues for ten years, and accommodates tself to the influence of 
the second sphere — that of Mercury. The intellectual and reasoning faculties begin to 
take their character, developing the elements and germs of genius and ability, and their 
peculiar quality. The third age corresponds with Venus, which lasts throughout the fol- 
lowing eight years, the number of her own period. From her Venus) originates the 
passion of love. The forth and adult age next succeeds, and is subject to the forth 
sphere — that of the sun. It endures for nineteen years, according to the sun's number. 
Authority of action now commences in the mind, the career of life is centered upon,, 
distinction and glory* are desired, and puerile irregularities are relinquished for more 
orderly conduct and the pursut of honor. Mars claims the fifth age, that of manhood, 
agreeing in duration with his own period, viz., fifteen years. He induces greater 
austerity of life, together with vexation, care and trouble. Jupiter occupies the six 
sphere, and influences the mature age during the twelve years corresponding to his own 
period. He operates the relinquishment of labor, of hazardous employment and tumult, 
and produces greater gravity, foresight, prudence and sagacity, favoring the claim to 
honor, respect and prvilege. Saturn moving in the last sphere, regulates the final age, 
as agreeing with its chilliness. He obstructs the mental movements, the appetities and 
enjoyments, rendering them imbecile and dull, in conformity with the dullness of his 
own moton. 

ATLAS COMPOUND is NOT a strong or powerful medicine with harmful effects. 

ATLAS COMPOUND often acts like magic, is a prompt and excellent corrective, 
aids nature to tone up the whole system by enriching the blood and aiding the organs 
of elimination to healthy and regular action so they can throw out the waste and poisons 
from the body. 


Out of every million persons who are born in the same vear 312,000 live for 70 
years, 107,000 for 80 years, and 8,841 for 90 years. Two hundred and forty-five persons 
out of every million live for 97 years. 119 for 98, 54 for 99, 23 for 100, 9 for 101 3 
for 102, and 1 for 103 years. A few among the million may attain even greater age 
than this, which may be expressed in fractions. Thus the chance that a man may live 
for 104 years is 0.3, and the chance that he may live 105 years is OX 

Is a National Remedy for an ailment which the American Nation of People are sub- 
ject to — Stomach Trouble in its many and varied forms and associte symptoms. 

It seems to be a known fact that more people suffer from Indigestion than from any 
other disorder. Of the many digestive agents known, none has so wide a scope of 
activity as a corrective, as has ATLAS COMPOUND. These valuable Tablets start 
digestion soon after entering the stomach and continue its function throughout the en- 
tire intestinal tract. 




Strong medicine taken just for immediate results may be violent in action and 
which causes so much distress and various forms of dyspepsia. 

Heart burn and belching of gas are often the result of 'eating starchy foods and 
leave the stomach in a worse condition than before taken. 

Tonic medicine, while slower in action, is better because it tends to bring about a 
more normal action and builds up the whole organism gradually, while it strengthens 
the entire nervous system. This, ATLAS COMPOUND does. 




ATLAS COMPOUND is recommended for diseases 
arising from Impure Blood such as Dyspepsia, Costiveness, 
Jaundice, Nausea, Loss of Appetite, Billiousness, Boils, 
Piles. All Gone and Tired Feeling, Sick and Nervous 
Headache, Dizziness, Gout, Nervousness, Constipation, 
Kidney Disorders, Liver Complaint and Diseases arising 
from Indigestion and Stomach troubles. 

ATLAS COMPOUND has solved the great problem 
of how to keep well and how to banish disease arising 
from Impure Blood. It i3 marvelous in its results, yet it 
is perfectly harmless and pleasant to take, as it is a purely 
vegetable preparation. It is not a mineral medicine like calomel, potash, etc., which has 
ruined the lives of thousands of people. In fact, it is a question whether calomel, or like 
injurious metallic drugs have not really ruined the health of more people than they have 
cured, for they are exceedingly dangerous medicines, and any one using them indiscreetly 
takes his life in his hands. 

ATLAS COMPOUND first acta upon the Stomach, clearing the system of accumulated 
bile and then goes to work removing impurities from the bfcod, throwing thvm off 
through the Bowels and Kidneys, thus setting every part of the body to work in the 
right way, so that you soon begin to feal like a new person. You are no" longer tired out 
and despondent, but your spirits revive, your head is clear, and you are as happy as a bird 
and equal to any task. Price 60 Cents a Box; by mail, if your druggist does 'not have it. 



ATLAS COMPOUND sells on its merits. It is the Best Blood, Liver, Kidney and 
Stomach Medicine on Earth. It is Marvelous and Truly Wonderful. We are receiving Thous- 
ands of flattering testimonials. When you see the wonderful results, you will be convinced 
that it is the Greatest Medicine on the market. It sells EVERYWHERE because IT 
HELPS SICK PEOPLE and everybody can afford it. It is the CHEAPEST Medicine. 

ATLAS COMPOUND is put up in the form of compressed sugar coated tablets. They 
are easy to take, easy to carry and will keep in any climate. Each Sixty Cent Box contains
